I have a 2007 California Special it has it takes when I step on the acceleration pedal now it acts like it wants to die is it a throttle body issue


Check engine light lit ? or ETC - electronic throttle control .
It should be noted that the ETC system illuminates a powertrain malfunction indicator (wrench) on the instrument cluster when a concern is present. Concerns are accompanied by diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and may also illuminate the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL).
Could be a throttle body issue or the APP or the PCM - engine computer .
Your best bet is to take your vehicle to the dealer or some other qualified repair shop .

Why does check engine light blink when I accelerate?


Hi Ced ,
The malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) is located in the instrument panel cluster. The MIL will display as either SERVICE ENGINE SOON or one of the following symbols when commanded ON:
Check engine ! The MIL indicates that an emissions related fault has occurred and vehicle service is required.
The following is a list of the modes of operation for the MIL:
?€¢
The MIL illuminates when the ignition is turned ON, with the engine OFF. This is a bulb test to ensure the MIL is able to illuminate.


?€¢
The MIL turns OFF after the engine is started if a diagnostic fault is not present.


?€¢
The MIL remains illuminated after the engine is started if the control module detects a fault. A diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is stored any time the control module illuminates the MIL due to an emissions related fault. The MIL turns OFF after three consecutive ignition cycles in which a Test Passed has been reported for the diagnostic test that originally caused the MIL to illuminate.


?€¢
The MIL flashes if the control module detects a misfire condition which could damage the catalytic converter.


?€¢
When the MIL is illuminated and the engine stalls, the MIL will remain illuminated as long as the ignition is ON.


?€¢
When the MIL is not illuminated and the engine stalls, the MIL will not illuminate until the ignition is cycled OFF and then ON.

Failed Emmission test


So you are saying the bulb for the check engine light is burned out and needs to be replaced ??
And the trouble codes you listed are for lean fuel mixture which could point to a vac leak or low fuel pressure.

Check engine light indicates p700 code


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0700 is an informational code that is stored in the Engine Control Module (ECM) That informs the diagnostic technician that there are codes present in the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and that the TCM has requested the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) (AKA - Check Engine Light) to be turned on. This is because the MIL is controlled by the ECM and cannot be turned on directly by the TCM. So, the TCM requests the ECM to turn the light on. To find out the nature of the failure that caused the P0700, one must scan the TCM to retrieve the fault codes stored there. Please note that MOST generic OBD code readers cannot access the TCM - this is the reason for the P0700 code to set in the ECM (to alert somebody with a generic code reader that further diagnosis is needed for the TCM).

How do i find my error codes


you can go to your local auto parts store and have them check your obd2 (onboard diagnostics system) to retrieve any stored codes for free. If you reply with those trouble codes I can define them for you and give you a better idea of what it will take to fix them. They can also erase the codes but if there is a problem present than the mil (malfunction indicator light) or engine light will come back on again soon after
